As for many people out there, 9/11 will forever be in my memory. I just graduated college and was just starting a new phase in my life when this happened. I was at work in Dallas and remember the feeling of confusion as news trickled in. I had friends who had moved to New York and DC that were also starting their new careers post-college and I couldn’t help but think of them in that moment. Fortunately, all were safe but the tragedy and loss of others is forever with me. On this somber day, I remember those who have lost their lives, the family and friends they left behind, and thank those who serve to protect our country.
